I was alarmed by the number of messages and went straight to the DD page and scrolled, scrolled, scrolled and... THERE IT WAS!!!
A TRILLION thanks to

for the feature
To every one that
Consider yourselves thanked!
Every comment will be replied (I'm glad it's a holiday in Portugal)
Drawn with pencils on paper (duh) -> scanned -> imported to photoshop -> cleaned and edited lines and proportions with the photo (layered) -> printed it -> drew the inside illustrations with Rotring indian ink pen -> scanned -> inked some more with photoshop -> placed on Illustrator -> LIVETRACED (yes, I took the shortest route here) -> simultaneous editing on photoshop and updating the "livetrace" to get desired shapes and correct fills -> expanded the trace to get editable vectors when the linework was "as desired" -> colouring with illustrator -> applied some shadows to get volume and the illusion of layers -> the end
total time... I can't remember but it was 2 weeks work
